AMD says it will apply a new naming scheme to its Ryzen mobile processors

AMD has overhauled its mobile Ryzen processor naming system. However, to correctly decipher the meaning of each number, you need to refer to a separate table.

AMD Director of Technical Marketing Robert Harlock blog In the judgment that the current AMD mobile processor product name system is not sufficient, it announced that it will apply a new 5-digit product name. Although it is logical, it is true that it is complicated, so a table explaining the meaning of each letter and number has been released.

The new processor naming scheme will convey more information and users will be able to pinpoint the performance range of a processor by the product name, Harlock said. Dragon Range, a mobile gaming processor in 2023, will also apply the new system. At the same time, Harlock said that shipments of laptops with AMD Ryzen processors grew 49% over the past two years.

Each of the five digits and letters represents information about the AMD processor. The naming scheme applies only to mobile processors, not desktop processors. The meaning of each number is as follows.

first number : Year of product release. 2023 means 7 and 2024 means 8. You can instantly see when the mobile processor was made and released.

second number : Refers to the processor family. Athlon Silver is marked as 1 and Athlon Gold is marked as 2. Usually two numbers are assigned to each product group. Ryzen 5 chips are labeled as 5 and 6, Ryzen 7 as 7 and 8, and Ryzen 9 as 8 and 9.

third number : means architecture. Zen 2 is marked as 2, Zen 3 as 3, and Zen 3+ and Zen 4 as 4.

fourth number : Describe the second number more specifically. 0 is a low-end processor, and 5 is a high-performance processor.

fifth character : Means the form factor or thermal design power (TDP) of HX, HS, U, C, E, etc. The HX processor consumes 55 watts and the e-series consumes less than 9 watts, some of which are PC processors and some are designed for Chromebooks.

AMD has unveiled a roadmap for future mobile processors, separated by new product names. Harlock explained that it will subdivide the different product categories in turn, starting with high-performance games. For example, if you want to get the best performance from a gaming laptop, choose the AMD Ryzen 7045 series equipped with a Dragon Range processor, and if you want an ultra-thin SOC product that captures mobility and gaming performance at the same time, choose the Ryzen 7040 series equipped with a Phoenix processor.

While the new naming scheme isn’t very intuitive, AMD’s ambitions to further strengthen its dominance in the mobile processor market are clear.
